8 out of 9 fail the MD5check. (d1t06 is the only one that passes)

6 out of 9 fail the FLAC check. (d1t01, d1t05, and d1t06 pass)

Not sure how you created that MD5, but it doesn't work correctly - If 3 of 9 pass the FLAC check, the MD5 should match it (3 of 9 pass).

When you create the MD5 on your computer, make sure running it returns 100% passing. Then, I would reupload all the files.

Make sure you aren't messing with the FLAC ID tags after creating the MD5. That will cause failures.

Mac users - what are folks using the generate their FLAC MD5's nowadays?

I usually use Carbon Shorten, but if that weren't available, I'd use the command line md5sum; I'm not aware of many (any?) other alternatives. Neither xACT and MacFLAC are capable of creating whole-file md5's for FLACs, though xACT can create shntool md5s of the audio only...
EDIT: I should say that I actually *never* create flac md5's to begin with unless someone asks me for them, and I've never had an md5-related import problem here.

At this point I can't even get a viable checksum locally, much less as an upload.

I've recreated ALL the flac files and then tried creating a checksum using Carbon Shorten and also Checksum+ ~ neither of which returns a valid checksum.

I'm at a loss what to do. What could contribute to not being able to generate a checksum?

For a PC, I would recommend trying scandisk and/or defrag since that can help with repeated md5 problems. I'm afraid I don't know what the analogue is for "refreshing" a Mac though- is there still a "repair desktop" feature? (I haven't used one regularly since system 7)
